View Full Version : WIP: Beaded Cotton Summer Top

04-16-2009, 11:10 AM
A little cotton summer top, but embellished with beads to the 'nth' degree! I love the randomness of the beads. I tried to get them as random as possible. Pattern is made up, as usual. Wish you could see the feather and fan stitch pattern better, but the beads run up the rib of each feather. I can't believe how heavy the beads are making this supposed-to-be light weight summer top! Maybe I need to rethink this!

I can't wait to see the final result! The color is amazing.

:happydance:very pretty, love that color!

Maybe it could be a spring/fall top since the beads add weight to it...will the beads cause it to pull out of shape? :think:

That's really really pretty. But beads are heavy!!! I wore a prom dress completely covered in seed beeds that must have weight 10 lbs.

OH! Thats gonna be so pretty! I want to make something with beads...but I still need to read up a bit more regarding this.
Nice work!
